Weekly Recap #27: Week of 11/12-11/18
It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
So, I’m writing this post early since it will need to be published before I return from my trip to NYC. Looking into my crystal ball, I’m going to say that I’m having a fabulous time on my trip and don’t want it to end. It is supposed to rain almost the whole time I’m there but hopefully it will just be light showers. If it’s too bad, I might be spending my trip visiting some of those museums uptown that I’ve always neglected in the past.
Aside from getting ready for my trip, my week was pretty quiet. I did participate in the HoHoHo Readathon, which was fun and helped get me into the holiday spirit sooner than I would normally be. I managed to read 3 out of the 4 books I had hoped to read but then got sidetracked with trip planning and didn’t get to the last book and also forgot about the chat until it had already finished, which was a bummer since I was looking forward to that. I definitely hope to participate in it again next year!
My favorite read from the readathon was Mr. Dickens and His Carol. I’ll be reviewing it this week and I think it’s a must-read for anyone who loves historical fiction, Dickens, A Christmas Carol, or heck even just Christmas honestly. It’s just such a charming read.
I’m hoping to get some reading done on the train so we’ll see how that plan goes. Sometimes that works out for me, sometimes I just fall asleep, haha.
Anyway, I think that’s it for me. Have a great week, everyone!

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
I’m really looking forward to reading The Girl in the Tower. Hope it’s as good as book1.
I started it on the train ride home yesterday and so far I really love it!
Hope you had a great trip!! Depth of Lies is one I want to get to. Hope you have a great week!
I just got home and yes, I had such an amazing trip. All of that blog hopping I had hoped to do while on vacation totally didn’t happen either, lol.
Hope you’re enjoying New York! Our weather around here can’t decide what it wants to do, so hopefully you’re getting at least a little bit of sunshine!
Thanks! Luckily the weather forecast ended up changing and we only had a couple of hours where it was really rainy. The rest of the time it was pretty nice. I think it would have been a great trip regardless of the weather, but it was still nice not to be stuck under an umbrella the entire time.
I hope you are having a great time in New York and it doesn’t rain the entire time you are there!! I did the readathon too, but I only got one book in. It was a good read, so I’m not complaining!
We actually had pretty good luck with the weather, thankfully, and the trip was amazing! I’m exhausted now but trying to do a little blog hopping before I fall asleep since I totally failed at doing it while on my trip, lol.
I hope you had a good trip. Sorry about the weather, but at least it wasn’t too cold. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
Thanks, I just got home and had a fantastic trip and aside from a few showers, the weather actually ended up being quite nice so yay! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
I hope you are having a wonderful time! I read Mr. Dickens and His Christmas Carol too and enjoyed it. I am glad to hear you did too! Happy Thanksgiving, Suzanne!
Thanks! I just got home and yes, I had a fabulous trip. I’m exhausted, but definitely in a good way.
Have fun in New York! I love train rides, so hopefully you can read some on the train. 🙂
Thanks, I just got home last night and I had a fantastic trip!
Ooo… I look forward to your thoughts of Mr Dickens and His Carol. I hope that crystal ball of yours was correct and you’ve had a wonderful trip away. A lovely week to you & happy reading!
I had a wonderful trip, thanks! I should have my review of Mr. Dickens up later this week. I really enjoyed it though. Aside from A Christmas Carol itself, it’s probably one of my all-time favorite holiday reads.
Another series I want to read – The Winternight Trilogy. Glad you’re enjoying the second book and the reviews for the first have been stellar. I think I’ll wait for the third book to be out so I can do a back to back reading. Enjoy NYC!
My trip was fantastic, thanks!
I love the wee picture lol I will always prefer real books to eBooks!! I need to read some Christmas-y books to get more into the Christmas spirit!!
I’m starting to read more ebooks than I used to, but real books will always be my preference as well.
Hope you had a great trip and the weather wasn’t too bad 🙂 The Girl In The Tower looks great, will have to check it out and looking forward to your review!
My trip was great, thanks! And I’m reading The Girl in the Tower now and am really enjoying it so far. 🙂
